Grant County Airport District No. 1 completed a taxiway reconstruction project with funding from WSDOT Aviation. This project installed and compact gravel along the taxiway shoulders to preserve the pavement by protecting the asphalt edge and also provides a safety feature for aircraft that may happen to go off of the paved surface.
The End Result
The project will install and compact 2” depth x 10’ width of ¾ - 1” minus gravel along the taxiway shoulders.
Compacted gravel shoulder on the taxiway provides additional safety for aircraft.
| Economic Incentive
Gravel along the taxiway
slows the deterioration of the pavement edges preserving the pavement life.
